March 16th 2015

It is crazy how I have been in the field for a month now. 

So this week was a good one. Sister Migao has a boot to walk in and her ankle is starting to heal. She refuses to get a car (we have been offered quite a few cars this week and she continues to say no). It seems that every week something has happened that makes going to work every day hard. The first week we were both sick, the second week, neither of us could sleep, the third week my comp messes up her ankle, and last week we had more issues with the ankle and both had evil tension headaches for a few days. Despite the trials we are still going and working and much as possible. and we are being blessed for it. 

We had a lot of opportunities for service this week. We found a food bank and the entire zone has started serving there. Thursday morning we had a blast at it. I am starting to get to know my district and zone a little bit better. i am still learning the names which is awkward because they all know my name yet i have no clue of what theirs is. There were a couple of days that we were walking and there were people moving in to the apartments near us. so we offered to help and even got the Elders in our district to come and help us out. walking up and down 3 flights of stairs for 30 minutes while carrying heavy boxes and furniture 2 days in a row is some crazy exercise. but it was so much fun and was great help to the people. 

So my investigators are doing great! Megan is progressing so fast and is already super knowledgeable about the church. This week she went with her friend to Deseret Book and bought a quad and got her name engraved on it (there is no turning back now). She is so excited for her baptism. she already has invited a bunch of friends and family and has asked a family friend in our ward to baptize her. She is getting baptized on March 28th. Kevin is also getting baptized then. He isnt progressing as much as Megan is but he is working on it. He is working to stop smoking. He really is doing great.
So this week we found out that our investigator Pattie is moving to CA for 6 months in April. She had a baptism date for the 28th as well but is not going to make it. she hasnt come to church yet and we are trying to figure out what to do with her. We are going to continue to teach her until she moves but we are praying for her as well. There is a possibility that she wont be moving because her husband might get laid off, but they arent sure yet. 

It has been a pretty good week! it has warmed up here for now. everyone keeps saying that there will be another big storm or two before mothers day. Most of the snow has melted so we are praying that there isnt more coming. Mainly because of Sister Migaos ankle. Snow and ice makes it really hard to walk in a boot. 

I think this week is spring break for the girls... i hope they have loads of fun! 

I love you all and i hope you have a wonderful week!
